  • SUMMER SUPPER 2.0 (SOLD OUT)

    July 21, 2017 6:00 PM

    This menu is summer at it’s finest. The first course will feature a raw fish preparation using our incredible California wild king salmon. Next is one of my favorite dishes. A sweet, salty and savory salad pairing huge chunks of cured seedless watermelon with rich Marcona almonds, briny olives and a rich but tangy vinaigrette of heirloom tomatoes and lime juice. For the main course we will truss, marinade and slow cook a whole Berkshire pork loin to pair with a smoky grilled peach salsa and fried Japanese peppers. Everyone loves Shishitos! And for dessert this date cake with cardamom and served with a sauce of slow cooked plums is awesome. This class is 4 courses and lasts 4 hours.

  • SUMMER DATE NIGHT

    August 11, 2017 6:00 PM

    I just got back from our annual summer trip to the east coast where we visited our family. The dozens of carefully preplanned meals in NYC prior to having kids have since given way to more laid back dining at the beach, old NJ red sauce joints and a few casual spots in Philly. But since we were visiting the grandparents, we had free baby sitting so lots of date nights. These dishes are inspired by some of my favorite things that I ate that week. Of course, I ate a slice or three of pizza every day. So the first course is a riff on “pizza” Next, and perhaps my favorite meal of the trip was a huge seafood boil right on the docks walking distance from the beach. It was just perfect with a cold bottle of rose. My wife and I had a date night dinner at Zahav one night and everything was delicious. After about fifteen dishes they came out with a whole lamb shoulder and crispy Persian wedding rice. It was amazing so lets recreate this! And my favorite dessert of the trip was a lemon and poppyseed cake with pistachios, rhubarb and strawberries so let’s get to it… This class is 4 courses and lasts 4 hours.

  • END OF SUMMER SUPPER

    September 8, 2017 6:00 PM

    Even though summer is technically coming to an end, this is when our local Bay Area products are at their best. At the top of this list is our wild King Salmon which I can’t eat enough of this time of year. Sliced raw it is rich yet light and incredibly flavorful. This is peak time for fresh figs and I know we will be going through cases of Black Missions, Brown Turkeys, Kadotas and more each week. They’re so good we’ll use them in two courses, our salad and our dessert. If you love figs, this menu is definitely for you. The main course will feature jumbo sea scallops which we will learn how to cook to perfection. This dish pairs the scallops with summer corn and tomatoes, both cooked a few different ways to create a unique and technical dish. I hope you can join us, this class is 4 courses and lasts 4 hours.

Students say…

“This is a real cooking class – everyone has their own station, it’s conducted in a commercial kitchen in San Francisco and you get real hands on experience and training.”

“Wow, what a spectacular experience. I was expecting a high-level overview of what we would be cooking plus some hands-on stuff, but over the course of four hours Jordan imparts such a deep set of cooking skills and knowledge that I feel that I learned more here than I had in the last four years. Jordan’s ability to handle a group of total strangers working with sharp knives and boiling pots and pans is awe-inspiring.”
